    We showcase more fantastic Nikon photography from around the world.

    Waiting in Vain – John Powell, UK

    “I don’t normally do studio portraits, but this shot was taken at the Focus on Imaging show at the NEC, Birmingham, in 2011. It was a free-for-all shoot, whereby the photographer who grabbed the best position bagged the best shot – in this case it must have been me! This image got me a PAGB Gold medal in last year’s Cotswold Salon National Exhibition of Monochrome Photography.”

    Holy Holi – James Khon, Malaysia

    “This image was shot in Mathura, a holy city near Delhi, India. It was taken during Holi, the festival of colours. It’s an occasion that’s celebrated all over India, and is a celebration of good over evil. It coincides with the arrival of spring. Over the few days of the event, devotees will throw dye-coloured powder at each other – all in good spirit and fun, of course!”

    Ooh, That Was Tough! – John Powell, UK

    “Even without the title, you instantly know what this guy is thinking – his expression says it all! The shot was taken on a freezing morning in January, at the world-renowned endurance event known as the Tough Guy. A keen eye and fast reflexes are needed to capture the best images there. The biggest obstacle to overcome was getting the right background – one that wasn’t too cluttered.”

    The Vein – Jure Kravanja, Slovenia

    “At first glance this seems to be an abstract image. In fact, it’s a view from the plane we were in shortly before we landed in San Francisco. From such a distance, a river in the industrial suburbs easily becomes The Vein, one of my favourite photographs.”

    Coastlines – Ursula Abresch, Canada

    “This is an abstract impression of an evening on the North American Pacific Northwest coast. It’s actually a blend of two separate images. The first is a typical view of the coastline from a ferry, while the second shot is a close-up of water in a pan. The images were blended together in Photoshop to get this ethereal scene.”

    Shot 1: Nikon D200, Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-SED, 1/125 sec, f/8, ISO100. Shot 2: Nikon D7000, Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX APO Macro, 1/60 sec, f/5.6 ISO100

    Up – Oleg Pozharkov, Russia

    “This was shot at a playground in a little Siberian town called Zheleznogorsk. I attached the camera to a bit of the swing using adhesive tape, and took photos with an infrared remote control.”

    Upwardly Mobile – Wayne Sherriff

    “A Ferris wheel at Glenelg, South Australia. The clouds were wispy, so I decided to use them as a backdrop for the colourful capsules. Again, I experimented with HDR tone mapping and sharpening techniques to get the eerie overall effect.”

    Nikon D80, Sigma 10-20mm f/4.5.6G EX DC HSM, 1/250 sec, f/8, ISO125

    Sideshow Grub – Wayne Sherriff, Australia

    “Shot in bright daylight at South Australia’s Adelaide Showgrounds, during the annual show. I processed the image to get the sinister appearance, mapping the HDR tones in Photomatix and doing tonal adjustments and sharpening in Photoshop CS5.”

    Nikon D80, Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-SVR, 1/250 sec, f/8, ISO100

    The Photographer – Yama Ibrahim, Malaysia

    “This image was taken in 2007, at a funfair in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The man in silhouette is my friend, who was shooting some fireworks that were happening at the time. I was supposed to join him but his outline and the moving Ferris wheel in the background got my attention more than the fireworks! I used a long exposure technique for this image, to capture the movement of the lit-up wheel.”
